Types of Train Accidents that Causes Injuries

Train accidents happen in mainly two forms:

  1. Accidents between trains
  2. Crashes between trains and cars on the road

Accidents between trains often receive a lot of attention. This is because there is always the risk of a large number of injuries or fatalities. Passenger trains in California routinely transport hundreds of passengers at a time. As a result, a crash between two of these trains can put many people at risk, in addition to those that are not on the train but in the vicinity of a collision.

In crashes between trains, it can be difficult to determine who is at fault or whether multiple errors caused the accident. For instance:

California Train Accidents Involving Cars

Trains in California can be involved in collisions with automobiles also.

These generally occur at crossings where trains and cars both use the same part of a roadway. These crossings are regulated by signals and several have gates that lower to stop vehicles from inadvertently driving into the path of a train. But not all of the crossings are well regulated, and those that are sometimes have malfunctions.

When this occurs, it is possible for a car to cross railroad tracks at the same time an approaching train will use the tracks, causing a collision between the train and vehicle. These collisions are very serious and usually lead to injuries or fatality to the occupants of the vehicle. The passengers on a train can be injured as well, particularly if the train brakes hard to avoid the crash or derails after impact.

With dozens of players involved and numerous ways a train accident can happen, it is not unusual that these cases can be difficult.

Additionally, train employees have unique protections under the law. The Federal Employees Liability Act, commonly known as FELA, can provide an avenue for an injured employee to recover for any kind of railway-related damages. These workers might have a claim under the law in addition to a claim against an at-fault party so that multiple claims may actually exist.

Consult an Experienced Monterey Park Train Accident Attorney

Train accidents often are serious and cause severe injury or death to dozens or even hundreds of passengers at a time. Also, those in vehicles that are struck by trains are at a high risk for physical injuries and harm after an impact. Regardless of whether you were a traveler in a train or in a vehicle, if you have been involved in an accident with a train, you might be entitled to a financial recovery for your injuries.

A personal injury lawyer can help you understand whether you have a claim and what damages you might be able to recuperate, including payment for your medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, as well as any other expenses you were forced to incur. With the facts of each accident and each injury differing from one another, it is a good idea to consult with an attorney to receive advice specific to your case.
